Ok, I was going to go with the same old, same old: Kate Smith, Beach Boys and so on. And they are good, don't get me wrong.

The other day I heard several of the landscape architects in my neighborhood blaring this song out of their trucks, and I had to go over and ask what it was. Snappy tune.

Moving, Everybody Moving. I don't know exactly what is meant by this. I feel like I am standing still holding my flag and everybody moving I guess.

That's catchy, the more the merrier! By the way, this is a Spanish group, from Spain I believe.

Crow, we're coming down to Atlanta tomorrow for the 4th weekend. Last time we went to Centennial Olympic Park for the fireworks. May just stay up in Marietta this year, though. Stone Mountain is just way too crowded anymore. I used to go there a lot 15-20 years ago.

and I like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNsmiqmaEWo better than Moving. A few years ago they played this about every hour at the Bourbon Street Pub in New Orleans. I went last month and they didn't play it at all. It's so upbeat!

I've been invited up to Lake Lanier, which I guess I'll go. I've already gotten some of my party spirit out down in the panhandle this Summer, of course, I party along as I go.

Be careful if you go downtown, and don't take your laptop. It might get stolen. Sort of a mini crime wave going on in Ga Tech area.

Yeah, I did Stn. Mtn. so much as a yout, I overdid it. Have a great time. Everyone be safe, and post some tunes here if you want.

P.S. Thanks for the song Kevin. I am really get out of touch as I've never heard this cover. Keep the music going folks.

By the way, Kevin mentioned New Orleans, I am putting a slower hit on here to change things up.

A great song for those sultry nights clubbing with your SO: have fun

The one and only, the master of tone and power, Mr. Al Hirt, "I Can't Get Started"

If you want to see what Al can really do, hang on to how he ends the song beginning at (2:10).

the other evening Belle and I were having a nostalgic time sending eachother youtube clips to watch/listen.

I tried to come up with a list of instrumentals that invoked a feeling of nostalgia.

See if you remember these and tell me the feelings they bring up:

Ok, here is an almost forgotten trumpeter with movie star looks. The late, great Chet Baker, with another slow one.....pour that martini.... My Funny Valentine

this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WElzyLtnNnU is a great re-make of a 60's favorite from Hair. I loved the orignal song by Oliver as much as I like this version.

Ok, I have to put another fast one, sorry if it's already been posted:

Got to do some Beachboys: Surfin USA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1FaflUn4Co&feature=related

Now, I'll take time to listen to some of this stuff we've posted.

Join in folks! I'm sure I'm probably going to be seeing a few pink elephants before the weekend is over. lol.

while I wasn't such a fan when they were big, I do love this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfM6nRVBvGs instrumental now. I like how the music slows down then speeds up, then slows down then speeds up.

I got to see them perform this live at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa in 1981. What fun!

I've seen the Beach Boys live 3 times. Heres a http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGdLDOXyWsg related group that I got to see in 1999, about a few years before Jan Berry's death.

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

1 July 2010
and this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxMyFe81FUg&NR=1 written by Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, was a HUGE hit for Jan and Dean http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surf_City_(song)

If you want to hear a woman with a fabulous voice, check out Heather Small http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ytvoRQk4Wg (formerly of M People). If you like that original version of the song, tell me what you think of this dance version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCLtU2FaOyU Same lyrics but so much more upbeat!

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

before that song, this was my favorite Heather Small song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ie78VtBtwBI

Crow, you probably didn't know that I'm addicted to watching music videos on Youtube. Here is another early 1990's artist who inspires me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MggrZMe86i0 Jon Secada

I just received my Zydeco rubboard via UPS this week. Inspired by that music in New Orleans. Here is how it is played: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7wz9qGkV7A and a catchy tune.

Two rubboards made by the same man who made mine, being the first uniquely American instrument, are in the Smithsonian collection. His father made the first one (as a musical instrument, not for washing) in 1946.

Can I break in? Here is some great Americana

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ayQq5AQxF0

I love the film Tin Men. When I was in my early twenties, I knew so many people like Tilly and BB. As this beautiful tribute to that time ends, this tune plays over the Baltimore street scene.

You can't beat Springsteen. I finally finally finally saw him in concert after almost 30 years of waiting!

But for July 4, you need a good Sousa march to really get in the spirit. Open the windows and just crank it up.

Crow will recognize this song - they played every night at Stone Mountain http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSeSR-of9Es For the uninitiated, Stone Mountain has a HUGE granite carving akin to Mount Rushmore, only the larger than life heros aren't US Presidents. They're Confederate heros: President Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson.

At night, they have a laser light show on the side of the mountain (actually on the carving), and while playing this song, the Confederates (both heros and their horses) walk off the mountain in a very touching Civil War story. Here is one youtube clip of the performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi1AmI3W0cs although you'll have to trust me, it is much better (and more emotional) seeing it in person.


Belle will be especially interested.

It's not the clip I want, but it will do. I prefer seeing Cagney dance up the wall.
